Excellent food and staff

Had a meal with my parents on Saturday. I had the mussels to start and then myself and mother had the monkfish prawn and scallop with courgette ribbons and pasta and was one of the nicest mains I have had in a while!

My friend treated me to the above on Saturday for my birthday. We are both keen bakers, and are very critical. However we couldn't find fault. The waitresses deserve special mention, they were polite and attentive. Only critiscism was when I asked for more tea, and we were charged extra- that should've been included in the price in my opinion

We visited the Fox on a Sunday lunchtime after a recommendation. We'd booked ahead just to make sure we could get a table. Arrived slightly early for our 12.15 booking, but waited at the bar as there were still lots of people enjoying their breakfast offering (which all looked great and would return for that sometime). We were seated for... More

Just returned from a delicious picnic bench (which looked stunning!) of an afternoon tea! I sometimes find afternoon tea is a bit too heavy on the sweet side but The Fox have got the balance of sweet and savoury just right! To begin with on the seat of the picnic benches it wasn't the usual sandwiches you'd expect but a... More

My daughter treated myself and my granddaugher to tea. We had the mini picnic, it was served on a mini bench and had lots of different picnic things on. It would not be enough for an evening meal but it was a lovely afternoon experiance

Just had afternoon tea at the Fox. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food was excellent and well presented. Two of our party had Sunday lunch which was very good too. Well worth a visit

Booked a table for my wife's birthday, with 11 of us in total. As we walked in there was already a good atmosphere, nice open fire, good mix of eaters and drinkers (it was a Friday evening) and a general bustle about the place. We had pre ordered, which wasn't essential but helped speed the order along, and when each... More

I had my 40th Birthday party at The Fox & it was fantastic! The food was amazing. Homemade pies, chunky chips & jugs of gravy just as I had asked for. Everyone loved it. Mel was very accommodating & couldn't of been more helpful with the arrangements. The atmosphere was great & everyone had a fab night. Would highly recommend... More

Had a picnic bench for the second time on Sunday 8th Feb. Food was as good as last time (the soup was warm only on this occasion) but the service was slow. Table booked but had to wait 25 mins but not informed or kept up to date, the table only became available after I asked, not sure how long... More
